    Lloyds keeps cash bonus cap despite return to private ownership

    Britain‎'s biggest retail bank is to retain a £2,000 cap on cash bonuses even after being freed from the shackles of partial state ownership last year. Sky News has learnt that Lloyds Banking Group is expected to continue with the limit on ‎cash payouts, nearly a decade after it was imposed by the then-Labour government. The decision, which is provisional and remains subject to change, reflects a desire within Lloyds' boardroom to demonstrate restraint on staff pay against a backdrop of improved financial performance, according to insiders.

    The Bank of Canada will get the first crack in the coming week at demonstrating whether, as many expect, monetary policy among the world's major economies is set to tighten more in 2018 than in any year since the crisis.

    New Look plots closure of 60 shops as high street ‎pain grows

    Sky News has learnt that the South African-owned chain is drawing up proposals for a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), a process often used by struggling retailers to restructure financial obligations to creditors. Sources said on Thursday night that New Look's CVA plan was not yet finalised and was only one of a number of options under consideration. If it does go ahead with the store closures, roughly one-tenth of New Look's nearly-600 outlets in Britain would be axed, with sizeable rent reductions sought at many of the remaining shops.

    Contrasting fortunes for UK retailers over key Christmas period

    Tesco has enjoyed its best Christmas since 2010, a detail packed with symbolism, as that was its last under Sir Terry Leahy, the chief executive who turned the company into the world's second-largest retailer and whose departure heralded several years of turmoil. Tesco's UK like-for-like sales - the measure the City takes most seriously because it takes no account of store openings or refurbishments and is the best indicator of underlying sales performance - were up by 1.9% during the six weeks to January 6.

    Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis says retail sector sliding towards 'precipice'

    Theo Paphitis has blamed the Government for allowing the UK's beleaguered retail sector to slide "closer and closer towards the precipice". The former Dragons' Den star, and entrepreneur behind high street chains Ryman, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue, blamed changes to business law as well as the disparity in taxes facing online platforms and bricks-and-mortar retailers. Mr Paphitis made the comments as a slew of trading updates have started to reveal just how challenging Christmas has been for UK stores amid a squeeze on household spending.

    UK retailers slump but Zoopla kicks off high-yield issuance

    New Look, House of Fraser and Debenhams (Frankfurt: D2T.F - news) bonds hit lows on Monday because of financial stress, but the year's first high-yield deal for online property platform Zoopla will test how far concerns around UK consumer names has spread to the market. ZPG, which operates Zoopla, is out with a £200m 5.5-year non-call two senior unsecured note via HSBC and Lloyds and will market the offering in a roadshow running from Tuesday to Thursday. Zoopla's deal was announced against the backdrop of a sell-off in UK high-yield retailers, with New Look's bonds plummeting by up to six points from Friday's close after reports over the weekend that credit insurers have halted the sale of credit insurance on new shipments to its suppliers, while House of Fraser's £175m 2020 FRN lost over nine points on the back of news that it is renegotiating its rents.

    House of Fraser seeks to slash rent bill amid high street jitters

    House of Fraser (HoF), one of the UK's biggest department store chains, is seeking to slash its rent bill, stoking fears of further casualties on an increasingly embattled high street. Sky News has learnt that HoF has contacted an undisclosed number of the owners of its 59 UK outlets to ask for substantial rent reductions. The chain, which is privately owned by Sanpower, a Chinese conglomerate, is understood to have made the "informal" request in recent weeks, although it was unclear on Friday whether it had been communicated to landlords before or after its Boxing Day sale got underway.

    It always looked premature to assume, as some commentators did, that the festive season on the high street was all right simply because Next (Frankfurt: 779551 - news) 's Christmas trading was not as bad as feared.

    Fat Cat Thursday a 'shocking sign of inequality'

    The UK's top bosses will have made more money in the first three days of 2018 than the typical worker can expect to earn over the entire year. This is despite executive pay falling last year from and average of £5.4m to £4.5m - or from 122 times the average worker's salary to 120 times. Peter Cheese, chief executive of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, said: "The drop in pay in the last year is welcome but will have largely been driven by the Prime Minister's proposed crackdown on boardroom excess.
